Guitar chords with lyrics

In the still of the desert, in the light of the moon,
  A chord diagramA minorAm      A chord diagramC majorC        A chord diagramE minorEm
Armando walks all alone
         A chord diagramA minorAm     A chord diagramC majorC             A chord diagramG+G        A chord diagramA minorAm
And the river ahead holds promise and dread
         A chord diagramFF             A chord diagramE minorEm            A chord diagramA minorAm
And hes nine hundred miles from his home
    A chord diagramA minorAm        A chord diagramC majorC       A chord diagramG+G       A chord diagramA minorAm
He pays the cyotes dodges la megra
A chord diagramA minorAm          A chord diagramC majorC         A chord diagramE minorEm
walks for four hungry days
          A chord diagramA minorAm            A chord diagramC majorC          A chord diagramG+G         A chord diagramA minorAm
when he finally hits Austin the boomtown is bustin
        A chord diagramF minorFm                A chord diagramE minorEm      A chord diagramA minorAm
but he takes what the contractor pays

                          Chorus
       A chord diagramC majorC                  A chord diagramA minorAm
When love for family is stronger than fear
             A chord diagramC majorC            A chord diagramA minorAm
when the desperation sets in
   A chord diagramC majorC                  A chord diagramA minorAm
a man will cross any line that is drawn
      A chord diagramFF                 A chord diagramE MajorE
and whos to say it's a sin
          A chord diagramA minorAm      A chord diagramC majorC             A chord diagramG+G    A chord diagramA minorAm
and he crossed himself at the borderline


                     the rest of the song is the same thing

He wired the dollars to Elena back home as he roomed with ten desperate men
when the builders had enough, the INS cuffed him, and it's back to the border again

                                 chorus

A chord diagramA augmentedA tearful reunion with family and friends, but soon the reality sets in
theres no work to be found in the dry desert ground
he must head to estados again

                             mandolin break

from Guadalajara came the man with no name
he said "You can have all that you need."
"There's no contract to sign but the terms are your life,
if you take my money and seed"

                             chorus


the payments were made, the seed it was sown
Armando watched the crop grow
even his brother in law in the army, was in on the plan from the go

7 months gone and the crops gathered in
but the brother has a plan of his own
he orders a raid, the army invades
and he takes what the village has grown

                            mandolin break

in from the west came the man with no name
he said "someone must pay with their life
"we know your brother's, your father, your mother
your children, your sister, your wife"

"Now we can not touch your sisters young husband
Tu Canoa is a military man
but you can decide who lives and who dies"
as he placed the gun in his hand

                               chorus

in the still of the desert, in the light of the moon
Armando walks all alone
and the river ahead holds promise and dread

Almost there ...
